Tropical Matcha Smoothie


Want to take a trip to zenergy paradise? Blend up this smoothie and you'll be sailing away on a mental vacation in no time :) Bright, tropical flavors combine with the power of matcha to bring you a one-of-a-kind drink that's both energizing and calming at the same time. I've made several variations, changing up the fruits and sweetness. Peaches are a great addition as well. Play around to find what you love! If you're new to matcha, you can learn about the amazing benefits here on my Matcha page.
